x Gordlinia grandiflora

Very new to the UK, this hybrid between Franklinia alatamaha and Gordonia lasianthus combines the hardiness of the former, but without any of it's finicky qualities, and most of the evergreen quality of the latter. The big white camellia-like flowers are larger than either parent and seen in late summer and autumn when some of the foliage turns rich red.

Xanthoceras sorbifolium

A far too rarely seen large, upright, deciduous shrub from N China. Its leaves are dainty like a Rowan and the flowers kinda remind one of a Horse Chestnut, lovely as they are, borne in erect panicles, white with a carmine eye in June. Flowering is usually very heavy. Very hardy and suitable for either acid or alkaline soils in sun.

Xanthocyparis nootkatensis 'Green Arrow' (new)

One of those exceptional trees for form alone. Think of the form 'Pendula' with it's curtains of pendulous scale like foliage, but on a much narrower tree. Strongly upright with the pendulous branches held closer to the trunk, yet still splaying out here and there in a most attractive fashion. A very hardy Cupressus relative for most soils and positions.

Xanthocyparis vietnamensis (new)

Discovered in only 1999 in N. Vietnam this distinctive small to medium sized conifer bears both juvenile and adult foliage even into maturity. Conical when young, becoming more irregular and even flat topped in maturity with horizontal branches. Not for the very coldest northern areas, but surprisingly hardy, even through winter 2010. A plant of great rarity.
